dc.description.abstractThe graphic practices associated with the profession of landscape architecture instead of providing an impartial and holistic representation of the landscape, may deny deeper modes of existence, interrelationship, and creativity. Specifically, the ability to represent the landscape as a temporal entity engaged in reciprocal relationships within a multi-sensory environment is not possible using current two-dimensional imaging techniques. Through a historical examination of the development of pictorial conventions in urban planning, the Renaissance, and Naturalistic painting shortcomings are associated with existing graphic practices and opportunities to diversify and improve them are identified. The outcome is a three-stage procedural imaging methodology and toolbox that contains strategies that resolve the identified shortcomings and diversify and complement existing graphic practices. A contextual application, based on a site in Athens, GA is presented to demonstrate the efficacy of the methodology and toolbox in re-envisaging the landscape by highlighting processes, relationships, temporality and sensory experience.
